Uri: The Surgical Strike has been minting money ever since its release and now it seems the movie, which is a fictionalised account of the retaliation taken out by the Indian Army for the 2016 Uri attack, will be crossing the Rs 200 crore mark soon. In the fourth week, the movie, starring Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam, Kirti Kulhari and Paresh Rawal, was still doing good business during the weekend at the box office. It has so far earned a total of Rs 195.49 crore.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted out the numbers of the movie, which was written and directed by Aditya Dhar and produced by Ronnie Screwvala under the banner of RSVP Movies, and we can see that on Saturday and Sunday it had minted a good amount, though slowing down on the weekdays.
Uri: The Surgical Strike’s punchline, “How’s the Josh?” seems to have caught on also among not only the audience but the stars and politicians.
The movie, which was released on January 11 and had received positive reviews from critics, follows Major Vihaan Singh Sherghil of the Indian Army, who played a leading role in organizing the 2016 strike.
The 2016 surgical strike, which had taken place in September after a terror attack in Uri, was conducted against militant launch pads across the Line of Control in Pakistani-administered Kashmir by the Indian Army.
